I would like the same behavior like Facebook.

When you type you have a homepage with some info, register and login.

When you're logged in, if you type or click on the logo you're sent to your news feed page.

How to do it on dnn7?

in site settings, there is an option for "page after login"
Note: this setting is not supported, if using DNN content localization.

I'm actually using it.

After Login, the user is sent to Forum page.

The Home page has useless information for logged users, so I made it visible only for not Registered Users. This way, when the user logs in, the Home page is not even on the menu.
But when the users click on the site logo or type root URL, the Access Denied page is shown. That's what I would like to avoid.

The behavior desired is like bellow:

When anonymous: > Home
logo click > Home

When logged in: > Forum
logo click > Forum

I've thought to make it by using only Home page with both modules from Original Home page (visible for anonymous users only) and modules from Forum page (visible for registered users only). But I'm not sure that this is a good approach.

Do you have any suggestions?

I would not make it invisible for logged on users. What you could do is making the modules that contain the "usesless" information visible only for non-authenticated users, and provide some useful information for registered users there (e.g. a list of the newest forum posts etc.), or add some injection to the home page that redirects registered users to the forum page.

Hi Roberto,

I would take the approach that Michael has said, use the permissions on module level.

Another option is...

not to use the Dnn logo control and hard code the logo into your skin file using some logic to redirect the user to the right page by role....

<script runat="server" lang="vb">

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

If DotNetNuke.Security.PortalSecurity.IsInRole("Registered Users") Then

display logo for registered use with link to forum


display logo for anonymous users with link to homepage

End If


There are drawbacks using this method though.

Hope this helps,
